Zip Selected Short Stories Featuring Ghost Dust Nicolas Wilson’s “Ghost Dust and Selected Stories” is a wide-ranging, eclectic collection of excellent short fiction, written in different styles and voices, covering the gamut of genres. Do you like a hard-drinking detective working a murder case? Then Hypotenuse starts you off with a bang. How about a chilling, and heart-breaking, letter from home by a soldier in Iraq? That would be Support. Wilson takes a stab at unicorns and dragons, artificial intelligence, mutated humans, post-war Vietnam, and even the lingering human costs of 9/11. The diversity of his stories is quite stunning, but not as stunning as how effortlessly he handles each genre. The common factor is his ability to use minimum effort, often just a phrase or two, to establish his characters and make the reader believe in and care about them. Some of his stories come with the more traditional twist or surprise resolution at the end; others are slices of dialogues or monologues, often ending just when the reader is wondering what’s going to happen next. Many have a certain resigned sadness to them, as if the characters know that things aren’t going to turn out well in their lives, but keep on going. Are all the stories equally good? No. But when you put together 16 stories like these, it’s almost quibbling to complain that one or two didn’t work as well as some of the others. The majority of these stories are simply excellent.I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review..
